Google Chrome and Application Shortcuts

I downloaded Google’s new browser Chrome last week, and wasn’t all that impressed.  It didn’t seem, to me, to run that much faster than my Firefox 3 (keep in mind I was running Chrome through my Parallels for Mac VM).

The one awesome thing Chrome brings to the table is the concept of an Application shortcut.  This is nothing more than a desktop shortcut to a particular Web Application.  For instance, I use Google Docs an awful lot, so I created an Application shortcut to a Google spreadsheet.  Now instead of opening up a browser and navigating to Google Docs, etc… I can now just click on the shortcut, and it opens up the spreadsheet in it’s own window, with it appearing to be an independent app, much like an MS Office document.
